FITNESS (1st F)
Tweet The Q (Abu)
Our workouts are open to men of all fitness levels and are organized to keep the entire group together while ensuring a thorough beatdown for all participants. Our model, in which leadership of the workout varies from day to day and week to week, means that workout leaders — “Qs,” in F3 lingo — are constantly introducing new exercises and ways of doing them. Because participants are challenged and pushed in new ways every day, they achieve an all-around fitness that makes F3 guys supremely fit for endurance challenges, including mud runs, obstacle races, triathlons, marathons, long-distance relays, rucks and all manner of other adventure challenges. On Saturday, August 1, 2015 we started a home-grown annual CSAUP called “The Sasquatch.” Check the ENC Directory and Signup for an event! The Nation also has their events out on this calendar!
While the classic F3 workout requires no equipment other than workout clothes, gravity and the great outdoors, our growth has allowed regional leaders to introduce specialized workouts, including bike rides, gear-focused workouts that include kettlebells and other heavy metal, track workouts for runners and trail runs. Check out the Exicon to see an example of some possible exercises.
F3 workouts take place at publicly accessible venues, including parks, school campuses, churches — even in parking lots! Often times we find ourselves out on the roads, we remind all PAX that Safety is First and Highly Recommend the NoxGear Tracer360 Visibility Vest (use code F3NFIA for a 35% discount and free shipping).
And while the vast majority of F3 workouts launch before the sun is up — largely because that’s the time of day when F3 guys can be most certain of being able to control their schedules — often we also offer evening workouts.

Of course in true F3 Fashion, we implented it here – Surrender the Booty Flag.
